Slice Of Life
Opening: Saturday, June 11, 2022, 4:00 – 6:00 PM
From a still life in an apartment to a bird’s eye view of a hometown to a surreal snapshot of sitting on the couch these great slice-of-life artworks offer insight into the small, common moments that might go unnoticed in bigger stories. These artists are masters of storytelling.
Jonjo Elliott's work is reminiscent of Fauvism and his collections encourage a youthful candor. Plants thrive in environments bathed in color and pattern. His focus is on the crossover between abstraction and representation, and he is constantly exploring where painting can take him and the viewer as a means of expression.
Inspired by the artist of the Modern Art era, including Post-Impressionist Paul Cezanne, Tae Ho Kang visualizes the modern-day search for identity in an age where information and images permeate every aspect of life. His scenes are flattened, with everything pressed against the surface. At times multiple views of the same houses are visible, trees and bushes are only vaguely alluded to, and the color palette is sparse.
One of Iqi Qoror’s greatest strengths is his distinctive multi-media surrealism. Qoror’s combination of different media merges not only different art practices such as painting and embroidery but past and present as well. The combination of modern expressionistic style with pops of color renders his artwork unforgettably visceral. This blend of portraiture, pop-textiles and surrealistic imagery invokes curiosity, confusion, and a playful connection with our contemporary world.
